Front Cover Differences
There arent many differences between the two magazines as they include the same characteristics that most magazines include. The colour theme is different and in the professional magazine there's a consistent use of the same colours linking it all together whereas in the student one the shades of colours are different. The image used in the college magazine is of a student where as in the Bieber magazine its a celebrity. The Bieber magazine is very professional and the image has been manipulated and transformed completely, the colouring and the sizing of the model its perfect to suit the target audience and show Justin Bieber as an older more grown up character. The layout and everything about the Bieber magazine is more professional, well thought out and very aesthetically pleasing.
